SUBJECT:   Law Libraries facing New Dark Ages



Dear Governor Davis:


It is almost impossible for me, in the space of one short letter, to explain how important it is for you to oppose the Legislature’s recent efforts to strangle the county law libraries all across California.


Just last week, the expert reference librarians at the downtown San Diego county law library saved me literally days of searching, when I found that a valuable case citation had been deleted from the latest edition of American Jurisprudence (a legal encyclopedia).


But, I would not be writing this letter if our excellent law librarians had only saved me a day here, or a few hours there.


Governor Davis, the work we are presently doing in the confines of these neglected archives will soon save the People of California many billions of dollars, if my aging copy of Windows 95b is still doing arithmetic correctly.


Let me illustrate with just a few examples which will have an enormous impact on the public interest in California, in the very near future.


First of all, our dedication to dissolving permanently the extortion racket known as the Internal Revenue Service has recently taken on a fever pitch, after 12 years of effort, due in large part to two actions which were recently filed in California federal courts.


One action moved the Ninth Circuit for a preliminary injunction in two companion appeals, to enjoin IRS from depositing any tax collections into any account(s) other than the Treasury of the United States.


The other action applied to the federal district court in Santa Ana, for an ORDER permanently dissolving the IRS for systematic historical racketeering in violation of the federal RICO laws, false designation of its true origins in violation of the federal Lanham Act of 1946, and massive restraints of interstate commerce in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890.  Damages will be multiplied seven-fold!


Another action we are in the early stages of planning is a statewide lawsuit enjoining all of California’s major banks from honoring IRS levies of bank accounts without the Warrant of Distraint (court ORDER) required by the holding of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of United States v. O’Dell, 160 F.2d 304 (1947).  You will please note from the published decision in this case that the court of original jurisdiction was the District Court of the United States (“DCUS”), not the United States District Court (“USDC”).


In the Defendant’s OPENING BRIEF to the Eighth Circuit in the case of USA v. Gilbertson (1997), and in my OPENING BRIEF to the Ninth Circuit in Mitchell v. AOL Time Warner, Inc. et al. (now pending before the latter Court), we have effectively proven that the Congress has committed a massive fraud upon the 50 States by broadcasting the USDC ‑‑ a legislative, territorial tribunal ‑‑ into every one of those States, but without expressly abolishing the constitutional DCUS.


This “con” was accomplished under color of a false doctrine which attempted to treat the 50 States, like California, as if they were all federal Territories where the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution did not apply.


In our extensive litigation on behalf of the public interest, we have referred to this false doctrine as the “Downes Doctrine” because it originated in the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in Downes v. Bidwell (1901), and did so in defiance of two Acts of Congress which expressly extended the U.S. Constitution into the District of Columbia and into all federal Territories, in 1871 and 1873 respectively.


Yes, Governor, perhaps it is time we start hyphenating our CON-Gress.  We have now confirmed that the Congress of the United States is implicated in a massive conspiracy to extort money from the Citizens of California, under false and fraudulent pretenses, using criminal extortion sponsored by agents of foreign principals under color of the Federal Alcohol Administration (“FAA”).  But, the FAA was promptly declared unconstitutional inside the several States by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of U.S. v. Constantine (1935), because Prohibition had already been repealed.


Yes, Governor Davis, the IRS is what remains today of a federal police force first introduced into the several States by the Eighteenth Amendment, later repealed by the Twenty-First Amendment.


We believe that Prohibition was secretly underwritten by the petroleum cartel, in order to perfect their monopoly over automotive fuels.  Once their monopoly was in place, Prohibition was repealed, leaving alcohol high and dry as the preferred fuel for cars and trucks, and leaving the federal police inside the several States, to extort money from the American People.


What makes this story even more compelling, is that we now have certified evidence that gas vaporizing technologies, patented and available prior to World War II, have been systematically withheld from transportation equipment now running throughout California, in order to prolong America’s dependence on foreign oil as the only available fuel for cars and trucks.  The Pogue Carburetor, for example, was already running on Allied tanks fighting field marshal Erwin Rommel during the North Africa campaign in that World War.


Surely, this one finding alone justifies whatever legal research and activism will be necessary to put these gas vaporizing technologies into production and onto the highways and byways of our great State.


I am sure you have often heard that California sets the pace for the rest of the nation.


We humbly request that you will not further cripple our important efforts to further the great public interest of California Citizens on a statewide basis, by surrendering to the Legislature’s short-sighted strangulation of legal research tools presently and so generously available at our county law libraries.


Please oppose the California Legislature’s efforts to cut back on these important public library services.  We need these public libraries now more than ever before in the history of this great State.



Sincerely yours,


/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
